Amazing...

I just learned to play Dueling Banjos on the guitar. Such a crowd pleaser.

Squeal!

Do you mean the gtr part or both parts? either way - good work! are you doing it with thumb pick or flatpick and fingers?

My dream is to be able to fingerpick some day....not so much gtr but banjo or pedal steel style (ona conventional gtr). I have enough trouble with flat pick...hopeless with fingers. I usually play bass with my thumb

Not just a solo duel, but playing a banjo on a guitar.

Haha, no, just alternating guitar and banjo on guitar parts. I've been playing for almost 10 years, but the last 3 years not so much. Since I like rock climbing and computers so much, my finger dexterity and muscle memory never really leaves so I can still pick it up and manage to do alright.

Sounds really good on a 12 string, I have never tried it on my mando so I suppose I have to give it a try.
